in the sea. apparently where the ship capsized is an area with very strong currents. he said the depth of the sea in that authorities did release a statement that included testimony from a bangladeshi survivor. he said as many as 950 people were on board the ship. many were locked in the lower decks and simply could not get out or escape from the ship when it capsized some time in the early morning hours of sunday.
john. >> just 28 survivors. potentially 900 people on board that small vessel. what a tragedy. ben wedeman, thanks. new this morning, u.s. officials are condemning an apparent isis beheading of two groups of prisoners. the captives seen in the isis video are believed to be ethiopian christians. nationals are calling the killings a brutal mass murder. it is being called quote an attempt to promote discord. our correspondent nic robertson has more. >> reporter: good morning, john. it seems to be a multilayered message from isis. absolutely brutal. the same brutality we have seen in other execution videos. the main part of the narrative of the more than 30-minute video is to tell christians you have two choices under isis control. one, you can die, or you can
submit to rule by isis. convert to islam or pay a non-muslim tax. very stark choices. that is the major narrative, if you will. they execute two groups of people. one group they behead right next to the mediterranean sea. the other group of 15 they shoot and kill by gunshot and that is in the south of libya. the message here is that isis extends control across all of libya or large parts of it. that is absolutely not the fact on the ground in libya there are factions. isis is trying to spread a message here that it is in control of large parts of libya. the other part of the message overall here is not only in libya is isis strong but by using the same media group it uses in syria and in iraq to
make this propaganda video, they are trying to create the impression that isis is really expanding influence and control more broadly through the middle east. >> coordinated across the regions within libya and beyond libya. nick robertson, thank you. the fbi has arrested six men across two cities in connection with an isistoday, president obama will host the crown prince of the united arab emirates.
a tsunami advisory lifted in the sea of japan. the 6.8 quake in the waters east of taiwan and south of okinawa caused buildings to sway in t'aipei. it caused people to seek higher ground. the tsunami warning was lifted about an hour after it was issued. right now, no reports of serious damage or injuries. let's get an early start on your money. cristina alesci is here. good morning. >> mixed morning. asia shares are tumbling, but u.s. futures are shrugging it off. futures are higher after the rough end to the week. friday markets fell. the dow shed 279 points. the nasdaq and s&p were also down 1%. that was largely because the chinese government announced new regulations on trading. more bad news from china. the central bank recognizing the
stanley. the first profit decline since 2009. the markets are ready for it. anything bigger than that we may have trouble. >> cristina alesci thank you. hillary clinton heads to new hampshire days after her potential republican rivals gather there to layout the case against her. we'll have the details next.
small business that makes small scale furniture for kids. correspondent jeff zeleny has latest from new hampshire. >> reporter: hillary clinton begins the second week of the presidential campaign here in new hampshire. she will spend at least two days here recreating the visit she started in iowa last week. it is all small down sized events. voters one-on-one in coffee shops to reintroduce herself to what the campaign says are every day americans. she is coming after a long weekend of republicans. ted cruz and rand paul and jeb bush and scott walker a long list of republicans trying to distinguish themselves by campaigning against her. that is the environment she walks into. she will be focusing on her own policies. she has a few new policies. we will see if she defines these this week. same-sex marriage is a different
view from eight years ago. the environment she is walking into as she comeampaigns. she will have a meeting with keane and concord. she will not have a big policy speech until mid-may. john. >> jeff for us in new hampshire. jeff mentioned on the republican side a parade of presidential candidates was in new hampshire this weekend. it took turns taking shots at hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton must not be president of the united states. >> this listening tour is something out of north korea. would you like to meet the dear leader and ask him anything? >> i think her dereliction of duty her not doing her job or not providing security for our forces and diplomatic missions
should preclude her from holding higher office. >> ohio governor john kasich is seriously considering a presidential run. he says he is not ready to make it official just yet. the mayor of baltimore is promising a thorough and transparent investigation following the death of freddie gray. the 27-year-old baltimore man died sunday. one week after taken in custody by police. his family claims the police are involved in a cover up. video from the scene shows gray dragged into the police van with his hands behind his back. >> i extend my sympathies to his family. i have no words to offer that will ease the pain that is resulted in this issue. >> baltimore police are not commenting on the case. hundreds of people protested outside a baltimore precinct
house over the weekend. organizers plan more demonstrations. the tulsa county sheriff is expected to speak later this morning about the volunteer deputy robert bates. bates is charged with manslaughter in the fatal shooting of the suspect he says he meant to subdue with his taser. his attorney released records he says show bates met all of the training required. an ohio police officer is being praised for holding his fire as a murder suspect rushed at him. the confrontation was caught on the officer's body camera. on the video, the suspect pleads with officer jesse kidder to shoot him. kidder refuses. our correspondent paolo sandoval has more. >> reporter: john. good morning. the personal body camera captured that very intense confrontation that could have taken a deadly turn.
>> get your hands up! get your hands up right now! >> shoot me. >> reporter: the guy you see is the double murder suspect according to our affiliate wlwt. despite the commands of kidder to get on the ground the suspect is asking the cop to shoot him. you can see the officer back pedal so fast he loses his footing and falls. he keeps his cool and his pistol sight set on the suspect without pulling the trigger. >> you need to make a split second decision. i wanted to be sure. >> reporter: we should mention there is criticism about the way kidder handled it. some former law enforcement officials say he should have opened fire the moment the suspect rushed him. his police chief says he would have stood by his officer if
deadly force was used. >> that shows great restraint and maturity. the video footage eliminated all doubt this officer would have been justified if it came to a shooting. >> reporter: chief harvey goes on to say he is working to secure funding to make sure all of his officers have similar body cameras. the one that was used to capture the images was purchased by kidder's family. >> thank you. it is patriots day in massachusetts. the greatest day of the year. hours away from the start of the 119th boston marathon. security is tight for the race which is the second since the marathon bombing. 30,000 runners will take part. 1 million spectators will line the route from hopkinton to boylston street. >> there is no intelligence to say there is any threat to the marathon. i want to encourage everyone don't be intimidated. our presence will be low key.
>> commissioner evans has a great plan in place. pretty much similar to last year's plan. making sure there will be security check points. >> the marathon takes place a day before the dzhokhar tsarnaev jury reconvenes to determine if the convicted marathon bomber will get life in prison or the death penalty. the letter carrier who landed his gyro copter on the capitol lawn is under house arrest in florida today. doug hughes hoped to raise attention by delivering 535 letters on campaign finance reform. now hughes is expressing frustration that his message is not getting through. >> i did not see on the ground the reaction i had expected. the police who took me in to
custody were very professional all the way through. even early on when their adrenaline was running. i respect them for that. they treated me professionally all the way through. >> hughes is facing federal charges. right now, he has to wear an electronic monitoring bracelet until a court hearing next month in washington, d.c. fallen trees and homes and buildings torn apart. this is the damage inflicted by the severe storms that rolled through the south over the weekend. the national weather service issued tornado warnings in mississippi and louisiana and tennessee. one ohio woman was killed when a tree crashed on her car she was

hundreds and hundreds could be dead this morning when their boat capsizes in the mediterranean. search crews on the scene right now. a crisis rages overnight. horrific video released by isis purportedly showing the massacre of dozens of christians. we are live with the details. a terror plot at home. the fbi arresting several men across two cities. welcome back to "early start." i'm john berman. christine romans is off today. ships in the mediterranean
recovered recovered dozens of bodies this morning. hundreds of migrants from libya thrown into the water when the ship they were packed into capsized. hundreds more believed trapped in the ship. many who died were locked inside the vessel by smugglers. our senior correspondent ben wedeman is following the recovery effort from italy. >> reporter: john we are in the port of katanya in sicily. we are awaiting the italian coast guard ship "gregoretti." it docked in malta and unloaded the bodies of the 24 people would died in the tragedy at sea. they will come later today with the 28 survivors. that is what the italian authorities are saying is the number of people they were able to rescue from the sea. as far as the maltese authorities, they say as many as
50 people survived. now last night, the italian authorities issued a statement in which they said they questioned a bangladeshi survivor from the tragedy. he said as many as 950 people may have been on board that ship. a much larger number than the original 650 that italian authorities were quoting. they also said that this bangladeshi survivor said during the course of this disaster that many of the people who were on the lower decks of the ship were not able to escape because the human traffickers had actually locked them in. as far as the traffickers go the italian authorities say they are conducting a widespread investigation of people involved in this tragic business of human trafficking. they have detained an unknown number of individuals from
sahara africa. this investigation is being conducted not just here in sicily, but rome and milan as well. john. >> ben wedeman for us. new this morning, u.s. officials are condemning the isis beheading of two groups of prisoners. the captives appearing in the isis video appearing to be ethiopian christians. a spokeswoman says the beheadings are a quote attempt to sew discord among the communities. we have nic robertson joining us. >> reporter: good morning, john. it is a multilayer propaganda message from isis. the video is telling christians they can live under isis control, however, they have to submit to islam and pay a non-muslim tax or convert to islam or face death. what they do in the video is
kill two different groups of ethiopian christians. one killed by beheading in the north of libya. on the southern borders of libya, they execute another 15 men by shooting them in the head. the effort here is by isis to create the image that they are prevalent across libya. that is not the case. there are many radical islamic groups. isis is growing in strength. what they are doing is using the same media group that isis uses in iraq and syria is create another layer of image here of propaganda if you will, because they are connected through the video production with isis in syria and iraq this means that isis is bigger and prevalent in the middle east. this is raw isis propaganda brutality, as we have seen it before. the deeper message here is one
that isis intends to show that it is growing and it is going to grow into places where more christians live. john. >> international organization that can coordinate efforts across several countries. nic, thank you. the fbi has arrested at least six men in minneapolis and san diego in connection with apparently an isis-inspired terror plot. more details are expected later today. we do know the plot involved young people traveling to syria or at least trying to in order to join up with isis. authorities say there was never any direct threat to the public. nuclear talks with iran resume this week in vienna. ayatollah khomeini slammed the white house on sunday. he said they were creating a myth of the iranian intentions. later today, president obama will host the crown prince of united arab emirates about the deal. tsunami advisory has been
